Aaaaaand the other side. Pretty sure the bare sticks are hollow. I assume I should cut them off? As far as care goes, all I did was cut the stems to about 8 inches, repot it in fresh soil, and I vaguely remember doing the total darkness thing for awhile(but probably not correctly). That all happened by the end of spring, and then it's been sitting on my porch. Should I just try again next year or is there hope? #poinsettia-care #poinsettia-advice #help #advice #plantadvice
I would cut those 2 dead stems off right to the dirt so that the energy can go to the rest of the poinsettia. The other side looks great and looks to be thriving👍 @savannahssucculentgarden I don't think its too late to put her in darkness for 16 hrs and bring her out for 8 hrs, she might still turn for you😘 sentimental lovely plant~keep her.
Okay so here's the deal I forgot about the strict poinsettia schedule for the last....idk 7 months or something? Not totally sure where I left off, but this is what I have. What can I do (if anything) to have the best chance of red leaves by the end of December? I really dropped the ball, here. It's been sitting in a spot on my back porch that is mostly shady and I had the thought, "Oh crap! I better water that!" approximately once a month. It should be dead, and half of it is. I'll upload a pic
@crabby58 @dirtgirlworld Beautiful and healthy? You saw the other side, right?😂 Really though, you guys are the best. I so so appreciate the advice. My brother gifted this to my mom last year and asked me to look after it. So I can't just buy a new one.
